When I was first applying to graduate school in 2010, I soon realized that I was not alone. I reached out to several undocumented graduate students who guided and supported me throughout the application process. With the help of an entire community, in 2011, I enrolled at San Diego State University to pursue my Master’s degree in Sociology. Fast-forward to four years later, and I am in my second year of doctoral study at Harvard University. It has taken the support of many to apply, and navigate, graduate school. That is why, I am excited to share with you all that my sister (former undocumented grad student and current counselor for undocumented students at UC Merced) and I have created a national network for prospective, current, and former undocumented graduate students!
It is our hope that this network will serve as the space to:
– Connect with fellow prospective/current/former undocumented grad school students across the country
– Share/receive helpful information and resources such as scholarships, internships, fellowships, programs, and much more
– Be part of a growing safe and support network
– Work together to increase the number of undocumented students applying to and completing graduate/med/law school
If you are a prospective, current, or former undocumented graduate/med/law student, please consider joining by filling out this form: UndocuGrads National Network
If you have any questions and/or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us at: email@example.com
We look forward to connecting with you!
